Default Using Gelatin In bottled beer

If I used unflavored gelitin in my beer before bottleing will there be enough yeast to carbonate in the bottle?

I think this should answer your question quite thoroughly: http://byo.com/mrwizard/1277.html
IMO, your beer will carbonate, it might take longer, but it should carbonate. You might have to tilt the bottles after a week or so, to resuspend the yeast and get them going again.

If there is one knock on my beer is it's generally cloudy. Really always has been from Extract, PM and now AG brewing. I'm looking to use a fining agent and gelatin looks good.

Has anyone done what the Mr. Wizard article recommends for natural conditioning? Use gelatin then add yeast prior to bottling? If you add yeast, how much would you suggest?
